Most nights I can sleep with the help of my c-pap machine, but there have been
a few nights when my head was hurting too badly to stand the straps around
my head.

I see my doc on Thursday and will ask if she recommends some treatment.
Some on my migraine support group say a steroid taper has been helpful.
Others say an infusion of ketamine has helped. Gotta be something.
Lunacie there may be a couple of things if you haven't already tried them. My buddy at work has chronic migraines. She's got some sort of tens device that looks like a wonder woman headband. It helps her a lot.

The other thing is my husband can't take nsaids for the next 6 months as of last week so he's trying to cut carbs to lesson the blood sugar highs and lows. The other thing that helps is citrulline malate (malic acid) but I've run out and need to get some more.

He's also cut out gluten and dairy and it seems to help (so far fingers crossed)

I'll let you know if this works
